The microelectronics industry is undergoing a transformation. 

Today’s engineers are challenged to create lighter and thinner designs with high-performing components that meet the requirements of specific applications. 

According to Functionalized Polynorbornene Dielectric Polymers: Adhesion and Mechanical Properties, “Polynorbornenes exhibit the key performance criteria for these demanding applications.” However, an un-functionalized polynorbornene exhibits poor adhesion to common substrate materials used in integrated circuits.

This is where functionalization comes in.

But first, what is a norbornene? What is a polynorbornene? Continue reading below to find out.
